During the summer at Advent, as our small groups break for the season, we create the opportunity to step into formation in new and dynamic ways. This year all summer studies will meet at the Church, 678 King st. in Denver. We have Summer studies on Anglicanism, Prayer, even our own version of Ted Talks.

Advent Talks: Issues of Faith, Justice and Culture
Mondays from 7-8:30p, July 17 - August 21.
Join us as we explore various important topics to think about as followers of Jesus in our modern culture. Each week a different person from Advent (Stephanie, Tyler/Dan, Sara, Shannon, Justin, and Jeromie) will share their passion and insight about an issue that we all need to think about such as Technology, Science, Peacemaking, Environment, Sexuality, and Justice. These conversations will be informed by a book called “The Justice Calling” which you are encouraged to read.
What is an Anglican? An Introduction to the Anglican “Dialect”
Led by Rob Paris
Sundays from 6:30-8p, July 16 through August 27, with a week off for Church Camp on August 13.
(If there is enough interest, we may do a second class, so if this time is less than ideal, let me know).
Every church has a history and a particular way of approaching the Christian faith. It’s own “dialect” you might say. If you want to understand more about the Anglican approach to Christian faith, this is the class for you. Beyond gaining information, you will be encouraged and enriched in your knowledge of Jesus.
On September 17th, we will host a confirmation service with Bishop Ken Ross. If you are interested in being confirmed, you will need to take this class to prepare. Ask Rob for more information about confirmation. (You do not need to go through confirmation to take the class).
Morning Prayer: Starting Our Day Together with Jesus
Facilitated by Matt Allen
Wednesday Mornings, July 19 - August 16
We will read “Road to Daybreak” by Henri Nouwen for inspiration and encouragement as we set aside Wednesday mornings for five weeks and explore various forms of prayer together. There will be conversation, but this will be more practical than theoretical. Our time together will pair really well with our sermon series this summer as an opportunity to put into practice the things we have been discussing about prayer on Sundays. We will meet for an hour, beginning somewhere between 6-7am, depending on participant’s schedules.
